Parenting is about getting up and going at it another day, regardless of how good or bad of a day you had the day before. Most of us are trying as hard as we can, even when it doesn’t work out, and realize there’s nothing to do but roll with the punches.
These 14 parents were out there making innocent decisions and thinking nothing of it, only to realize later it was coming back to bite them.

It’s funnier that no one has tried to help her.

Imagine his face.
11. Noooo not the rechargeable mug!
Those things are life if you have kids.

This could be creepy but maybe it’s just funny?

I really have no idea how a person decides to do this.
2. This is so something I would do.
You’ve gotta be able to improvise.
